Currently listening to Caravan's Golf Girl and couldn't help but smile when hearing the Morse code in the song. I can think of two other gems that contain Morse code.....Hawkwind's Spirit of the Age and Klaatu's Sub Rosa's Subway. Are ther others that I'm forgetting or haven't heard?

the starting riff in YYZ by Rush is actually a morse code used in a Toronto airport. The whole story can be found in some Rush fan sites on the web.

I was thinking about that...

Is it really a morse code,or just something that accelerates until reaching madness scales?

No, there's morse code too at another point, but it's more subtle. If you translate it it says something along the lines of "f**k off RB" - a charming little dedication to Richard Branson.

Genesis's Watchers is probably the most obvious.

Close To The Edge, perhaps?

If anyone of you have watched "Wag the Dog" movie, there should be a prog act, who would put a morse code piece in his track, saying "Courage, Mom".

yet you still have time!

If I remember well, I think there's some Morse code on Roger Waters' "Radio Chaos". Can anyone confirm ?

I don't remember well because I got rid of it at one point... thought it wasn't Roger at his best...

A mega-obscure one: “S.O.S.” by the Russian group Ariel.

Also, didn’t Balaklava by Pearls Before Swine have some “naughty” message in Morse Code on one song?

Oddly, the Canadian group Morse Code didn’t actually have any songs with Morse Code on them (though I haven’t heard any of the early Morse Code Transmission albums, just the later prog stuff).
